Migration Info This species is widespread in Mexico and Central America during its winter sojourn south of our border, where it is found in the same sort of habitats it uses during the breeding season: open clearings scattered with trees. Populations from the eastern states are very common in the Caribbean, where they invade a variety of habitats. Blue Grosbeaks commonly overshoot their breeding range in spring, turning up in more northerly locations such as Massachusetts and Nova Scotia.
